Square Credit Card Reader

We are halfway through 2011 and my leading candidate for App of the Year has to be Square.  Many times I have been asked if I take cards for some products I sell or speeches I give but since I don’t have a credit card merchant account I have to take a low-tech check.  No more.

Square is one of the simplest ways to accept credit cards.  It’s easy to use and comes with a free credit card reader for your phone or iPad.  No complicated contracts, monthly fees, or merchant account. When you swipe cards with Square there is just one fee: 2.75%.

Sign-up is quick.  The small reader device is mailed to you within a week.  Plug it into the earphone jack and start swiping.  Receipts are emailed or sent as a text to recipients along with a Google map of where the purchase location was.  Absolutely too cool.
